It was ok. Cheap. It does have real eggs. Skip the hash browns neither my friend or I ate them. Just that they were out of a box. Not even frozen. Which would have been better. Service ok. Waitress talked a lot to other customers,...More

Our first visit to a Steak 'n Shake. It was terrific! Wait staff was great and food is very well done. Wish we had a Steak 'n Shake in Northern VA.

After a long day of driving, my 14 year old brother and I decided the Steak 'n Shake next to our hotel was a good option for dinner. Upon walking in, we were greeted promptly by a very friendly Bryan. We were seated right away...More

I would rate steak 'n Shake a little better than McDonald's. No where near as good as Wendy's. Burgers a very thin. Lots of accouterments. Shakes are average.

Burgers and fries are a great value. Fast, fresh and cheap. What's not to like? Walk to Red Roof Inn.

It's a pretty good restaurant for fast food. The melts and fries are good here. There are many choices of milkshake to choose from. A good place to go eat something and hang out with friends even during the late hours.

Good service and decent food. If you need something quick, this is a good place to go. If you have young children, they will like this place. The milkshakes are awesome.
